Monthly horoscopes by Candace Looft, of Beyond the Veil Tarot / Collage by Janeva Zentz
Welcome to your November overview! We’ve got a lot happening this month; an intense New Moon, a VERY chatty Harvest holiday, and a whole lotta luck.
The month kicks off with Uranus’s retrograde back into the headstrong sign of Aries on the 6th. Suddenly aspects of yourself you’ve been working on for the past two years come to a head. People are apt to be reactionary when it comes to personal needs. Tensions will rise as as the nodes of the moon move into a cardinal square with Uranus. The new nodal placements of Capricorn (south node) and Cancer (north node) signify and new change in our lives for the next year and a half collectively. We are being asked to move into a space of healing and nurturing. Slowly we will begin to bring better attention to our home and family units.
On the 7th of the month, we have a very watery New Moon in Scorpio. It’s really a time to dig deep, decide what can be recycled, re-used, or what just may need to go. Expect to clean all the skeletons out the closet for this one. Scorpio is the sign of rebirth, and this New Moon is especially important. It’s taking place right before Jupiter leaves its year-long visit in Scorpio and heads into its home sign of Sagittarius. Jupiter in Sagittarius is considered a “lucky star”, bringing knowledge, culture, and travel to all that it touches. Venus ends her several weeks retrograde and goes direct on the 16th in Libra. Maybe you’ve reevaluated your relationship with someone, or refinanced a credit card. Regardless of what changed with your values, I can assure you, you’re much better off. This same day Mercury, the God of communication goes retrograde. This will allow three weeks of introspection on your part, as he retrogrades back into Scorpio highlighting everything Jupiter taught your in 2018. Be EXTRA mindful of scheduling holiday traveling now. Consider that trip insurance in the off chance plans suddenly change in November/ December. Be mindful of contracts, agreements, leases, and legal endeavors during this time. Don’t worry, this period ends around the 6th of December and you’ll move forward with ease.
Be extra mindful of the energy on and around November 19th. Mars in Pisces squares off with Jupiter in Sagittarius. It’s a bit of an “asleep at the wheel” type of time. Take your time when traveling, be sure to be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Avoid any mind/ body altering substances while driving. This energy bleeds into the 22nd of the month. It’s then on the 22nd we have the Gemini Full moon. The Sun moves into expansive Sagittarius, opening our hearts and minds to endless possibilities. Harvest Day proves to be a rather chatty day among others. There is a new and exciting energy to this Full Moon. Many may find themselves engaging in new traditions, and educating others about their beliefs. It’s with an open mind and heart we connect with others. On the 24th, Neptune ends his several month period of a retrograde. It’s now we put our dreams more so into action. If you’ve been noticing some sleep disturbances the past few weeks, they may subside. If you’ve been taking note of some personal habits you’d like to kick, this may seem a lot easier now.
Finally, on the 25th of the month, the Sun makes it’s once a year conjunction with Jupiter. By some astrologers, this is considered to be the luckiest day of the year! Take note of what’s coming up for you. It’s a good time to know what house is Sagittarius in your natal chart. Whatever sign, message, idea or omen appearing now may very well give you look into what’s about to expand in your life in the coming year. Be sure to write down a wish, or vision. Maybe you’ve wanted to take a trip to a foreign place, take a class, or dive deeper into a spiritual practice. Whatever it is, Jupiter is listening, so go big or go home.

What an excellent and abundant Full Moon! The Sun and the Moon are making their monthly opposition to one another in the opposite signs of Gemini and Sagittarius. Both representing ideas, communication, expansion. But Sagittarius is more prone to filtering out the noise and trying to expand the BIG PICTURE. Sagittarians are natural born story tellers. So what’s your story? This is a time to really sit down and ask yourself; what is it you want? Who or what do you want to be? What do you believe in? Where is your life heading? Your answer may be very far off from where you stand now, and that’s ok. If you’ve been spinning your wheels, and are ready to make some changes now is the time....
As with many aspects of the esoteric and occult and even mainstream religion, magic is composed of dualities. The most obvious divide is that of black ("bad") magic and white ("good") magic. From time to time, when acquaintances find out that I mess with the craft, they immediately ask "but you're doing the good kind of magic, right?" So, I personally prefer the Latin terms Maleficium and Beneficium. These better encapsulate the difference between working with ill intentions (malice) and working to heal (benefit). Although something of a trope, a sort of stereotype rooted more in both folklore and mass media than in how real magic is done in the world, this duality still helps classify our knowledge of the magical arts.
